Alize Hotel

If luxury is what you’re after, the Alize Hotel should be on your accommodation list. The fresh and modern exterior with white chalet-style apartments gives way to a central courtyard, featuring two pools and a sociable communal area. Spa facilities and a kids club are ready to be put to good use and with a restaurant, snack bar and pool bar on site, you won’t go hungry. The hotel is conveniently located just a few hundred metres from the resort centre, where you’ll find a host of eateries and shops. The beach is also only a short walk away.

Overview of Olu Deniz

Holidays to Turkey have so much to offer from stunning beaches, great weather and amazing heritage through to some of the most exciting food in the world. The Dalaman region is a particularly picturesque part of this enigmatic country and offers a varied holiday experience. Known as Turkey’s ‘Turquoise Coast’, it would be an understatement to call the Dalaman region beautiful with its clear blue waters and intriguing glimpses into the past. Olu Deniz is particularly worth a visit, thanks to its world-famous beach and gentle acceptance of tourism which has lead to some fabulous amenities without the original character of the area being sacrificed.

Things to do in Olu Deniz

Olu Deniz Beach is world-famous for being one of the most stunning anywhere, thanks to bordering with the iconic Blue Lagoon. You can choose to lounge on the soft sands or hire a hut with beanbag seating. Be prepared for crowds though, as it really is gorgeous here. Shopping is almost a national pastime in Turkey. As is haggling, so get yourself to the Fethiye Market and don’t accept the first price for anything. You’ll be amazed at the variety on offer but watch out for fake designer goods. If you can tear yourself away from the Alize Hotel, beaches and markets, a microlite flight is well worth your time to drink in the spectacular aerial views that have made Olu Deniz so popular.

Resort Summary

Twenty years ago, Olu Deniz was Turkey‘s best-kept secret. An unpolished diamond on the Turquoise Coast, this pristine stretch of sand bordering perfectly calm and clear waters had only been hit upon by a handful of intrepid backpackers and their tents. Fast forward a couple of decades and the campsites have been replaced with an array of high-end hotelsexcellent restaurants and cafes and bars by the cartload.

Olu Deniz has done a sterling job in terms of its tourism, without losing its character in the process. Yes, the resort is dominated by travellers on cheap holidays to Turkey during the summer months, but for a relaxing day on the beach and a break away from it all, there is no place better. What’s more, there are also enough adrenaline-fuelled activities to keep the more active holidaymaker happy, as well.
